I was not previously aware of the existence of many of Louisa May Alcott's writings outside Little Women and its first two sequels. This story collection sits in an uncomfortable zone today: it requires a long attention span, but has themes which are of most interest to younger audiences. "Tilly's Story" is a nice Christmas tale that may work with third graders. ( )

I inherited this little book from my mother. It includes three charming Christmas stories that are very representational of Alcott's time period. Sweet and comforting for holiday reading, but I passed it on because I didn't feel the need to read them more than once. However, if the the mood should ever strike I can get it at my local library since they have added it to their permanent collection. What a compliment! ( )

I have not read any works by Louisa May Alcott before and found these three stories quite enchanting. This book is short stories that once appeared in a newspaper. The Quiet Little Woman is Patty's Christmas story. She is an orphan who is eager to be adopted. When she is adopted she is treated as a servant. She bonds with the aunt of the family and reveals things to her that she doesn't reveal to her adoptive family.

Tilly's Christmas is the story of a poor girl Tilly and how she keeps a happy disposition by believing that you should treat others the way you would want to be treated.

Rosa's Christmas is the story of a horses life told by the horse herself. When the clock strikes midnight on Christmas Eve all animals are endowed with speech for one hour.

The stories are heartwarming and have morals that you don't see to often any more. ( )

There are actually three Christmas stories in this little book, and they all sound like the Louisa May Alcott we know from "Little Women" in that they are heartwarming, heart-wrenching, entertaining; and they all have very obvious morals. In "The Quiet Little Woman," a little orphan finds a family to love that will love her in return. "Tilly's Christmas" tells about the happiness a child receives on Christmas because she is kind to a little bird. "Rosa's Tale" is told at that magical first hour on Christmas when animals are said to be able to talk, by a faithful old horse who doesn't want to be sold away from the family she loves. Anyone who loved "Little Women" will love these stories. ( )

This is a collection of three “lost” Christmas stories by Louisa May Alcott. The editor and publisher, Stephen Hines, implies in his forward that all three stories were written for inclusion in “Little Things,” a magazine started in 1871 by the five Lukens sisters and modeled after “The Pickwick Papers” in Little Women. However, according to the The Louisa May Alcott Encyclopedia, there is only evidence (from her letters) that Alcott wrote the first story, “The Quiet Little Woman” (retitled by Hines, originally called “Patty’s Place”), for the girls’ magazine. The other two stories are “Tilly’s Christmas,” originally published in 1868 (and later republished under the title “The Fairy Bird,”) as well as “Rosa’s Tale,” originally published in 1879 in a story collection.

The short stories are typical Alcott style and would be appreciated by her fans. It does bother me that the editor renamed the first story, probably to take advantage of the popularity of Little Women. With its content, red binding, gold dust jacket, and small Christmas-stocking size, the book was likely published to take advantage of the Christmas book market – but now it’s out of print. ( )

Patty stood at the window looking thoughtfully down at a group of girls playing in the yard below.
Introduction: I like to help women help themselves, as that is, in my opinion, the best way to settle the 'woman' question.
